I guess it depends on who the audience is for the diff?

If it is end-users, they want it a 'plain' format, so they are not
seeing markup, etc.

Developers might want a more technical (full diff), instead of a diff of
the content.

There are tools for showing the difference between the _content_ of XML
files.  Maybe something like that?
